It has been said that a second language is one of the best gifts a parent can give a child. L’Etoile du Nord French Immersion (LNFI) is the only French immersion school in St. Paul. Our goal is to have all of our students speak and understand French by grade 5. With many native French speakers on staff and a highly-involved parent community, LNFI offers remarkable learning opportunities to our students.
All students at LNFI will be receiving iPads to use at school. These devices will be assigned to individual students, but will stay in the classroom.
Key dates to know:
November 16 - Parent & Family Info Night @ UC (both campuses attend)
November 18 - UC Handout
November 19 - LC Handout
